Sorry. No funny post today. I gained ... sigh ... GAINED 1.3 pounds. SIGH. Of course, I know what's wrong. I've been worried about my niece, depressed, sitting in front of the mindless TV, eating pretty much anything that sits still long enough to for me to eat. I tell you right now, ottermans are not as tasty as you might think.

I've always been an emotional eater. Depression, worry, etc., and I head for the comfort food. It's a shame that comfort food is loaded with fat, sugar and calories, but it is. I've yet to meet anyone who could take comfort from a rice cake.

So I hope you had a better week. I've pushed our total weight loss down, but I will try to do better next week. A diet is never a failure as long we pick it up again.

I'm right there with you Tech! I gained a pound. I strayed from my good eating too much this week.

Michelle said...

It's ok Tech. I have been fighting some of my own cravings. Some of it is emotional, some is bordom. Thus, my over doing it this weekend physically, trying to keep my mind off of it.

You will be on target next week! I have faith in you. :)

I must have done good with my cravings. I lost 3.6 this week.

TECH said...

We'll do better next week, Jaime. I know we will.

TECH said...

Woohoo Michelle! You're awesome!

Wow, Michelle!!! :) :)

I'm in the club with Jaime and Tech. I gained .4, but how was I expected to do anything else with Mississippi Mud Cake in the house??? I eventually took care of it by inviting one of the boys over after school to help DS finish it off (he was only too happy!) However, the damage had been done, apparently. Rats.

By the way, be sure to check your totals on the sidebar and make sure I have them right. I'm trying to keep track, but I get confused easy ... :)

Unfortunately, my total is right. Sigh.

Wait, now I'm seeing my old total. I must be caught in a time warp.

Let's make this easy, mine should be 2.8. :P

Michelle said...

I would just like to say that I LOVE Weight Watchers and want to have their babies... :P

TECH said...

LOL Michelle!

FF, I'm showing 2.8 on the sidebar. Maybe refresh?

I'm going to have to take a pass on weighing in today. I forgot to do it first thing this morning and I've already stuffed my face this morning. It's been a hard week so I don't expect to have any good news to report anyway. I'll catch up next week, OK?

hk{{{Hugs}}} for Trixie. I hope you're doing well. Bless you for all you do. :)

Tech, I did refresh, but it goes back and forth. Probably some quirk of AOL.
